While we can’t make similar predictions about the PowerPC G5 processor or desktop Mac, Go2Mac sources have assured us that the new LCD iMac (which we have dubbed jMac) will be announced at The Big Dance which runs 08-11 January in San Francisco.

Few details are available at this time, but we do know that a large number of developmental units (DVTs or mules) have be spotted on Apple’s Cupertino Campus. A source indicates that Apple is leaning towards making the line entirely LCD-equipped rather than making it more modular with the option of a low-cost CRT monitor. Prototypes have not contained the TiBook’s 15.2-inch LCD as predicted, but instead are being tested with several 14 and 15-inch LCDs from Samsung. More on this exciting story as we get it.

What will the LCD iMac look like? Will it be like the flat-panel prototype posted on The Register last summer? Or will it look more like folding LCD Compaq prototype we pointed you to a few weeks ago? Post your thoughts on the new iMac in our Future hardware message board.
